Mizzou finishes 2nd in the SEC in APR achievement

Basketball's got a little bit of work to do, however.

Per an release, Missouri's athletic department once again fared well in the classroom.

Mizzou posted four conference-best marks while ranking tied for second in average program APR among all 14 SEC schools. The average APR for Mizzou's 20 varsity sports was 987, trailing only Vanderbilt (992).

Mizzou's men's indoor (988) and outdoor track (988) programs and women's swimming and diving (1,000) all led the SEC while the Tigers' wrestling team (986) led the Mid-American Conference. Mizzou's softball program ranked second in the SEC with its 994 mark and Gary Pinkel's football squad ranked third among SEC schools at 976. Of Mizzou's 20 varsity sports, 12 ranked among the top five in their respective leagues as well.

This has been more or less par for the course for Mizzou in the APR era. There is one potential concern, however, as noted by The Trib's David Morrison.

Instability within the basketball program had a different effect beyond simple on-the-court results, apparently. There probably isn't any major concern there, but a couple years of actual stability for Mizzou Basketball would go a long way.
